 WOOL DOG is a completely handmade product.

It is made from dog's undercoats . It is a long and painstaking job, taking about 2 hours to complete all the phases of manufacturing a ball of wool, ready to knit, weighing 50 grams.

CARDING

The undercoat fur is rough.

It is carded several times using a carding roller to

aerate the pile and break down the oil.
This

operation allows the fibers to lie in the same

direction
to facilitate spinning.

  

 SPINNING

The undercoat is spun on a traditional

spinning wheel.

Two spools of a single yarna yarn in one

direction.

Then, the two yarns are assembled in the

opposite direction to make up the wool

THE HANKS 
 
Once the wool is twisted it is then made into hanks

and placed on the reel.
 
 
After this process, the wool is tied  in

several places to avoid it getting tangled during

the washing process. 
  
 WASHING and DRYING  
 
Next, we wash the wool several times. First in 

water and vinegar to remove oil and odours and

then with a wool softener.

 THE BALLS

The balls are made using a winder. They are personalized with the name and breed of your dog. You begin knitting by using the wool from the center od the ball.
